  • Replied in Some OM fun
    I had an OM-4 from the original batch and it's meter stopped working as the warranty ended. During the attempts to get it repaired and then re-repaired it was stolen. The OM-4 had the best meter ...
  • Replied in Some OM fun
    I remember your post and pictures and that neat M1 of yours. It is fun to know that the OM concept is finally back in the shape and size.
  • Replied in Some OM fun
    I think of it as Quarter Frame which skews it further. Media dimensions aside I can make bigger and better prints from the new guy.....:-D I have a black OM-1, too but I thought that the silver ...
  • Created discussions Some OM fun
    So, here is the oldie come 'round to meet the new guy...... f/1.4 seems to be the common factor I got your back kid
  • Thanks for checking and getting back. When you run into stuff like this it does make you wonder "what were they thinking or did they just stop thinking?" The E-1 was designed by pro shooters that ...
  • Hi Scott, I think that you have a good idea here. You might also think about natural light but in unusual settings. One source of ideas might be a photo contest held by The Ukulele Site. I think ...
  • When you get one you want to print, just print it. The printing processes do eat noise and the noise that is left just may be fine enough to give an impression of film in the image texture. Good ...
  • I don't know if it is the "biggest" and it can usually be detected only at some elevated level of enlargement or magnification. At nominal sized prints or screen magnifications there isn't any ...
  • I used to do the same thing...lol One of the best lines that I've read in this forum in response to noisey whining" was: "Be careful, one person's noise is another's texture"    ;-)
  • This is interesting to me because when I got my M5II and shot those first JPEGs that we all do, I found that the default setting shots all looked "cooked". So, into test mode with all the ...
  • Thanks for the links. The review matches my observations with the one that I have. The sharpness is very noticeable even with -2 jpeg sharpness (M5II). Great for portraits but with the +50 crowd ...
  • Replied in Good examples
    Not everyone is wired the same, but I have found that there are some focal lengths(angles of views) that just feel strange to me and more so in the wide end (shorter than 35mm). I like the ...
  • An optical bench would say that it is 28mm give or take a few mms. It is the angle of view that is flexible. As far as I know optical benches measure the same on all planets and the actual focal ...
  • On the planet CX the 28mm would be  75.6mm in planet FX focalizers.....;-) I have used my 28mm Elmarit on my N1V2.
  • One thing that shooting with a wide angle will bring up is an old rule of thumb. When you shoot portraits with any focal length, be sure that you are 6ft (2m) or more from your subject to avoid ...
  • Replied in Emil
    I am from the "BTB" (before the beads) era. I had moved to Hawaii by the time of the beads. The flower behind your ear is another issue altogether though.....:-D
  • Replied in Emil
    Hey Emil, On reading your "back to SF in the 60s" I had to go back ad take a second look...being from the class of '64 SF State.....;-)       And, you know, you are right! Back in those days I had ...
  • Hi Jim, Glad to hear that things are moving along. My oral coronations went smoothly and we are momentarily enjoying the dry weather. If those two hours don't fall in the good light, you could ...
